I believe that Benefit is the master of brightening. I love their eye brighteners, high lighters and almost anything they make that gives you a light-full or glowy look. I am SO in love with their classic face high lighter High Beam, so I have high hopes for any product I try out of theirs. I was surprisingly very disappointed in their newest highlighter for several reasons, and I felt like I should let you know, so here’s my Benefit Watt’s Up Review.
First of all, I don’t really understand why Benefit put this product out. They already have an amazing highlighter that’s a huge asset to their line (High Beam), and is designed to do the same thing, and does it much better. Watt’s Up smears your foundation and is much more of a challenge to blend. In addition to that, the texture is a cream to powder, which ends up looking a little too powdery and dry at times – at least on my skin. A final dislike would be the sponge they attached on the end of the tube. It’s definitely too small to blend much of anything and both the caps covering the product fall off. So recap – I don’t like the texture, packaging, or application.
I hate to say it, but the only thing I enjoy about Watt’s Up would be the colour. When I swatch it on my hand I can see that it is quite pretty and definitely has that candlelit look, however I don’t feel it has the same translation on my face after it ends up looking like an unblended streak. Maybe that’s an exaggeration but compared to other highlighters, that’s how I feel.

I hate to hate, but some products just don’t fly with me. Please keep in mind this is my personal opinion, I definitely recommend trying out any product to gather your own thoughts. On the bright side, Benefit will be releasing ANOTHER new highlighter in the same style as High Beam and Moon Beam, called Sun Beam and I am certainly going to try that one out, I have no doubt that I’ll enjoy it. Thanks for reading my Benefit Watt’s Up Review, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
